Transportable FM Personal Listening System
Most FM systems are relatively expensive ($580 to $1,000) and that puts them out of the reach of many
hard of hearing people. This transportable FM Personal Listening System is different.
It's very affordable—would you believe only $197? That's less than a third of the price of other FM systems.
Sure it is a bit bigger than most FM transmitters, but boy does it work well.
The beauty of FM systems is that they are wireless. To test how far away this
receiver picks up beautiful clear sound from the transmitter, I put the
microphone against my TV's speaker and walked away—and walked away—and walked
away. The official range of this transmitter is listed as 100 to 150 feet, but
in my testing, I got considerably greater distance. Just using ear buds (not my
hearing aids) I could clearly hear (and understand) my TV better from several
hundred feet away than I can understand my TV when standing just 4 feet from it
with the volume full blast. To say the least, I'm impressed!
So if you want a wonderful, yet very affordable FM system, you should check
out this transportable FM system. The person you are talking with could be well
over 100 feet away (depending on whether you are outside or inside with a lot of
steel in your building) and you hear him as clearly as if he were talking right
into your ears.

Features and Benefits:
- Radio Orpheus FM receiver/FM radio (3⅜" x 1⅞" x ¾").
Digital tuner and scanner. Covers the complete 72 - 76 MHz ALD band
and the 88 - 108 MHz FM radio broadcast band so you can use this same device
as both an FM receiver and an FM radio. Uses 2 AAA batteries which give
about 12 hours of use (not included).
For more information on this FM radio/FM receiver,
- Detachable lanyard for your convenience. Wear it around your neck
where you will not lose it and it is conveniently positioned for adjusting
- Deluxe stereo ear buds (or you can use your favorite
earbuds/earphones if they have the standard ⅛" stereo plug).
If you want to use this system via the t-coils on your hearing aids,
instead of plugging in the earbuds, you can order either the Music Links
or a neckloop (The Music Links will give true stereo if listening to the
radio. If listening to the FM receiver, both the Music Links and
neckloop will give you dual mono.)
PLS FM Transmitter. (4" x 3⅜" x 1⅛").
Weighs only 5½ oz. Transmitter tunes 16 channels at the twist of a knob.
(It covers 72.1 to 72.9 MHz and 75.3 to 75.9 MHz in 0.1 MHz increments.
The channel numbers and frequencies are marked on a chart on the bottom
of the transmitter and also on the battery case.)
Easy to use controls. On the front is the channel switch, and jacks to
plug in the antenna and the microphone. At the back are the left and
right audio RCA jacks for plugging into a stereo audio source (TV,
radio, stereo), the A/C power jack and three recessed controls (hence
the screwdriver) for adjusting the input levels for the L and R audio
channels and the microphone input.
- Battery pack module for portable use (2½" x 2½" x 1")
(module on right in above picture). Uses 4 AA
batteries (not included). With batteries installed, only weighs 6¼ oz.
My testing showed the battery pack gives basically the same range as the
wall power supply. You can expect to get about 9 hours of use out of one
set of batteries.
- Wall transformer (70" cord) for when using in one place such as
hooked up to your TV, stereo or radio.
- Telescoping metal antenna (9" collapsed; 35" extended).
- One microphone. It comes with a lapel microphone (70" long cord) you can clip to your
clothing (white mic. left) to give wonderfully clear sound by the person speaking. The
lapel microphone also has a plastic clip with a peel off backing so you
can permanently mount the clip by a loudspeaker or other constant sound
source (top left). You then set the microphone in the clip when you want to use it.
Two patch cords (44" long each) to connect the FM transmitter to a
sound source such as a TV, radio, stereo, or sound system. One patch
cord has stereo RCA plugs at each end (shown right) for connecting to devices that
have RCA jacks (most TVs for example). The other patch cord has RCA
plugs at one one and a standard ⅛" (3.5 mm) stereo plug at the other end
for connecting to devices that have ⅛" jacks (most portable audio
devices such as CD players, MP3 players, iPods, computers, etc.).
- Screwdriver (standard slot tip, 5⅛" long).
- Attractive black canvas carrying case (9" x 7" x 3½").
It has 5 pockets that easily
hold all the Personal Listening System components.
- 5 year warranty. You don't have to worry about getting stuck with a
system that doesn't work. This system comes with a full 5-year warranty.
